Hi astaingegerdm. I have decided against all drugs. They wanted to give me steroids for MC.No steroids. It eats your bones and causes cataracts. I took the Pepto Bismol route – 8-10 tabs per day and when I got up during the night, I was falling. I was losing my balance. I got off Pepto Bismol and the balance problem ceased. I know the researcher who stated Pepto was the way to go, but not for me. I think it's not recommended for MC, now. I am Diet all the way and it has helped. I am slowly healing. Microscopic Disease is a nasty monster. It makes your mind go off the rails. You can't think. You are fatigued, irritable and depressed. You live in the bathroom and wear Depends. Sometimes it's so bad with watery Diarrhea, the diaper leaks through. I went to ASPEN DENTAL for a toothache. They told me I had 15 cavities. They tried to sell me their electric tooth brush, mouthwash, floss and toothpaste. It's a Money Game and with Aspen Dental, I knew everything about them was a lie. They are a corporate dental chain run by rich men in NYC, who aren't dentists. I started crying and watery diarrhea was running down my leg. They marched me out of the building like a criminal. They are a money-grubbing chain and I was a mess. My car was filthy from the D. All they care about is your money. They should be shut down. I went to another dentist and he said you have three cavities and a filling coming out. I brush three times per day and floss twice! I hate anything corporate in the medical field. If you need a support group, check out MC and wonderful Wayne Persky runs the site and can help. He knows so much and the people on board tell their stories of what works and doesn't work. I love the site. Good luck with this monster.
